WSOP 2013 - One Drop High Rollers - day 1
Connor Drinan

So you want to be a high roller?

Step right up, anyone can win!

Anyone with $111,111 in cash, that is. 166 players took a shot to win the first ever One Drop High Rollers event. And all of them can expect a big fat karmic payback, because their entry fees have already raised over $400k for the One Drop fresh water charity.

Last year's $1 million buyin Big One for One Drop raised $5.5 million and kicked off One Drop's participation as the WSOP's official charity partner. Nearly one billion people don't have access to safe drinking water, and over 2.5 billion live in areas with no sanitation. It is a water crisis, and One Drop is working very hard to help those billions of people.

166 to 108

The field was cut down to 108 in the 10 levels of play on day 1. Day 2 could be a long one, because 100 players will be eliminated to get to the final table of 8. Good luck to the remaining players!
